What were to happen if the battery were to be disconnected while the engine is running? Will it stall out considering it's what's powering the car while it's keeping the engine running?

Actually the alternator powers the car the battery is a energy reserve and also helps stabilize the battery voltage from spikes. Never remove the battery cables while the car is running on a computer controled car. It can damage the computer.
